The West Virginia Cemetery Survey is dependent upon the involvement of interested persons
with a knowledge of local history and an interest in its preservation. Historic and genealogical
societies, community groups, Boy and Girl Scout Troops, and other organizations are invited to
participate in the survey process.
If you know of a cemetery in your area that you believe should become a part of the Survey, contact the Division of Culture and History by telephone or mail. A Survey form will be sent to you at your request. If possible, include in your request the name of the town nearest the cemetery, so that we may send a copy of the topographic map to you as well.
Please address your requests to:
